Title

Siam: Tea for Kenneth's Birthday and Watana

Description

Margaret gave a tea on Kenneth's birthday because that was the day that Wattana had its commencement, and they all had to go. Margaret explains the missionary work in girl education in the region and how these girls later were in high demand for marriage because of their education and their contact with foreigners. Wattana was one of these schools.
